“We are in completely uncharted territory now”, said Ministry‘s Al Jourgensen, “witnessing the unravelling of what was once a functional democracy. Our government is under attack. Our planet is under attack. It‘s time for a major reboot.”
Watch ‘Twilight Zone‘ below:
Filmed last December just outside of Los Angeles, the video features Ministry guitarists Sin Quirin and Cesar Soto, Tony Campos (Fear Factory, Static X) on bass, keyboardist John Bechdel (Killing Joke, Fear Factory), live scratcher DJ Swamp (Beck, the Crystal Method) and Derek Abrams on drums. Guest appearances are made by Gray Wolf, President of American Indian Movement (AIM), the internationally renowned and idiosyncratic Lord of the Cello and an army of Ministry supporters who participated in the band’s PledgeMusic AmeriKKKant pre-order campaign.
The video was produced by Chris Roth and Steve Roth for The Other House production company, the same group that produced Jourgensen‘s previous music video, ‘I‘m Invisible‘ for his 2016 Surgical Meth Machine release. Chris Roth also took on director duties for the video, with Steve Roth supporting as Director of Photography and editor. The Other House has produced a wide array of broadcast design projects for Revolt TV, Nike‘s Kobe 8 System, MTV, Aol.RISE, the Syfy Network, VH-1, CNN, PBS, “The Profit” on CNBC, the 2017 Emmy Awards and many more.
Chris Roth commented on the video: “I‘m a life-long fan of the band and very politically active. Not only was this an opportunity to collaborate creatively once again with the one and only Al Jourgensen, but also an outlet for much of my pent up aggression and frustration regarding the current state of politics in our country.”
AmeriKKKant will be in stores on March 9th. Tickets for Ministry live in Dublin’s Tivoli Theatre, are on sale now. Please visit this link for more details.
